Exploration Place

Log Number: ARPML-250941-OMLS-22

Exploration Place in Wichita, Kansas, will create and implement an online and in-person educational program that will promote recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic by raising awareness of key mental health issues and teaching strategies that program participants can use to improve their own mental health. The project also will support national efforts to address the unequal socioeconomic impact of mental illness and reduce the stigma that prevents many people from seeking treatment. Through a combination of live science experiments, hands-on activities, and games, attendees of all ages will learn about the differences between good and bad mental health, understand misconceptions about mental illness, and learn how to improve their daily mental health.
